7:03 am
there was hail, heavy rain at least two tornadoes and along the eastern seaboard firefighters are battling large wildfires. government forecasters are saying 2012 has started out warmer than any year on record. there were more than 15,000 record-high temperatures in march. all 50 states set at least one record this record. this morning fires are burning when it is already fire awareness week. terrell brown is in new york. terrell, good morning to you. what can you tell us? >> reporter: gayle, good morning. this is the worst fire they have seen in more than a decade and efforts continue to get that fire under control. more than 100 fire companies have been here on the ground battling those flames and even the national guard has been put on standby.
7:04 am
wildfires broke out up and down the east coast monday fueled by whipping winds and dry conditions. >> it keeps it blowing, pushing it farther and farther. > reporter: on new york's long i larjsd hundreds of firefighters work to keep flames from closing in on a nuclear physics facility. the fire swallowed up about a thousand acres, destroying at least two homes and sending three firefighters to the hospital. >> this fire is as serious as it gets. it is not yet under control. >> reporter: neal coleman's son shot this video of the fire as it crept dangerously close to their home. i'll tell you, the fire was over 100 feet long. it was unbelievable. you see it in the movies and on tv. until you see it, you think, wow, i'm in trouble. >> reporter: they're on track to burn through a thousand acres. yesterday it came within a few feet of some homes. >> it's horrifying. it's literally behind our home.
7:05 am
>> reporter: the dry windy weather helped feed flames in pennsylvania and connecticut where a brushfire lined a railroad track. the national weather service issued fire warnings throughout the mid-atlantic region along with parts of the midwest and south. in virginia continuehelicopters dumped water to try to douse the flames. in miami a fast-moving fire caught residents by surprise. >> actually, that's the biggest fire i've ever seen in my life. >> reporter: back on long island, the fire officials say the fire is about 50% contained but they warn homes are still in jeopardy, and it's this kind of dry brush and grash, you can hear it pop it's so hot out here that's adding fuel to the fire. there are forests of this out here. meanwhile firefighters have no idea when they'll have this fire completely under control.
7:06 am
gayle and charlie, back to you. >> terrell, thank you very much. there are big changes in the martin case. the federal prosecutor will not bring charges. >> meanwhile zimmerman is speaking out for the first time online and asking help from his supporte senior correspondent john miller has been reporting on the case and will now. good morning, john. >> good morning, gayle. >> what does it mean and what does it signal in your mind? >> if angela corey wants to arrest george zimmerman, she can draw up an information and go do that. i thenk what this is a strategic decision. if she puts it in grand jury what's occurring is under secret. no one's allowed to discuss it with the rare exception of the witnesses themselves, but i think what she's saying is it's going to be may call i'm going to take the heat from one side
7:07 am
of this argument or the other. it's going to be on me. it's not going to be the 23 people who decided in how the case was presented. >> we're going to talk to trayvon's mother in a few minutes here but back to this decision, whau do we know about this prosecutor angela corey and how she handles cases like this? >> this is not reporting. this is analysis. but i think if we're reading the prosecutorial tea leaves here by eliminating the grand jury from the process, she has a history with the "stand your ground" cases which says you don't have to tobacco down. you can die fend yourself. that's the heart of the legal question here. she has a history of taking those cases on and going after people who she feels are using the "stand your ground" claim falsely. on march 16, not a long time ago, she did a case involving a traffic dispute, a road rage
7:08 am
incident where one man get threatened by the other gierks shot him several times, killed him. he's black, the victim is white. i think what we're seeing is a prosecutor who has a reputation for being independent, making controversial calls and for taking on this call. >> stay with us john. we're now going to go to martin's mother, sabrina fulton. she's here with her attorney. good morning. >> good morning. >> how do you feel about this prosecutor's decision not to go to the grand jury? >> i just feel that it's going to give the coroner's office a chance to do a thorough examination and it will be in her hands.
7:09 am
>> do you have confidence in her? >> we belief that by not sending it to the a grand jury we believe she has enough evidence to make an arrest. he at least needs to be arrested. he'll have his day in court, but sa sybrina wants justice. >> when you ask why he has not been arrested what do they tell you? >> they're basically saying they're still having an ongoing investigation. it's still ongoing. they haven't given us any answers and we're still in search of what happened really. sybrina fulton the attorney appears to be on your side. but they say, listen, everybody needses to be calm because there
7:10 am
are two sides to every story. what do you all have to say about that claim? >> i just have to say that my son was in fear for his life. my was running away from george zimmerman, not toward him. >> all the evidence -- erica, charlie, and gayle, all the evidence appears that that 911 call and all the other people and then you hear of the phone logs everything points to him running away. don't take our word for it. look at the evidence. it needs to be a public trial and it needs to be transparent where everyone sees the evidence. it's like the shaken baby syndrome. it's like grasping at straws. they need to have him arrested
7:11 am
and there needs to be a trial and the arrest needs to happen directly and we believe miss orey is going do that since she's gotten rid of the grand jury. >> have you talked with miss corey? have you had any conversations with her? >> yes. she's still going on with the investigation. she's been trying to communicate in a very responsible manner. >> does she lead you to believe that an arrest is close in this case? >> well what she said -- >> she actually said they're going to be wrapping up the investigation soon. she never said whether she was going to ared him or not. she just assured us that she would do a thorough investigation and we truly believed that after the investigation is complete that he will be arrested.
7:12 am
we have faith that he will be arrest arrested. >> john miller is with us as well. john? >> i think one of the things we've seen is by skipping the grand jury process -- the grand jury generally sits two times a week. i think what the parents are saying here is they seem to be getting very close to to that decision, whatever it is. noopt element is how do they do that investigation? that is. they take the police investigation and go ever over everything. then she has retraced those step, look at all that forensic evidence and sending is it out to independent experts. >> i'm sure you've heard george zimmerman has set up a website asking for donations. what's your experience of that? >> i'll say this. he said he's experienced a life-altering event. well trayvon martin experienced
7:13 am
a life-ending event, and sybrina and he are having to live with a son who was unarmed. was unarmed. didn't have a gun. and george zimmerman is trying to have us believe that his life is so terrible now. we believe trayvon martin would have been in jail had he been the person who killed george zimmerman. >> my understanding is what you've been saying all along is you want zimmerman arrested but you want to have everything come out. is that correct? >> that's correct. >> we want everybody to have their day in court. god bless sibybrina and tracy. he needs to be arrested. >> thanks very much for joining us. john miller thank you very mump. in syria this morning the government says it's oh bag the
7:14 am
terms of a u.n.-brokered cease-fire, but activists say they attacked two grounds. clarissa ward is near the border at a refugee camp in turkey. clarissa, tell us what you see and what is happening. >> reporter: good morning, charlie. good morning, gayle. we're here at the turn eric border. just moments ago they arrived here. they're playing drums, chanting slogans. kofi annan arewill be speaking with them. he's really here to fight for the survival of his peace plarngs six-year peace plan. so far, charlie, no signs that that is happening, and we are hearing reports of ongoing
7:15 am
violence inside the country. >> there areal sew reports that there seemeds to be the government putting on a serious meeting dwrouchl have any sense of that where you are? >> well we know that syrian's prime minister is ann moscow. he said perhaps the peace plan wasn't being ee felted the as quickly or suddenly but he stopped shortly of really criticizing the regime. the syrian regime would like to choose who the international monitors would be. so we're seeing the syrian regime trying to renegotiate the term ts of the peace plan on the very day they're supposed to be
7:16 am
implementing it. >> thank you so murph. collarry ry clis collar have you heard of it? rebecca jarvis is here. reba ka, what is it exactly, and why is it worth so much money? >> well, first off, gayle, this is a mobile photo-sharing application. what that means is it's an application that lets you take a picture with your iphone or android and share it on line through services like facebook and twitter. it was valued at $5 million and this week face wook had offered a billion dlafrmts it makes it more valuable than "the new york times," barnes & nobile calloway golf that we know much better than their name goes so
7:17 am
facebook sees a lot of value. >> why do they want it and us the it signify the mobile technology? >> it is about mobile technology. more and more people are accessing the services like facebook on their phone as opposed to a computer at their desk. we spend about a fif october f our time when we're on facebook looking at photos and on facebook itself 250 billion photos are shared on a daily basis. police in tulsa, oklahoma tell anna warner that two suspects charged in the shooting rampage are now confessed. all the victims are african-americans. both men are being held on $9 million bond. they're not charged with a hate crime.

me page][e:20011231][v:tv] there is concern this morning over a possible link between dental x-rays and a certain type of brain tumor. a new study found that patients who had extras at least once a
7:38 am
year on their entire mouth were more than twice as likely to develop a tumor. >> doctor is a director at the research science. good morning. >> good morning. >> the question you ask is should i have x-rays at the dentist's office. >> the answer is yes and no. >> how do you know when it's yes and how do you know when it's no. >> everything in moderation. it's the same recommendation. the point is if you need an x-ray, if you have symptoms if you have pain in your teeth and the dentist is concerned and is concerned you have a cavity you need an x-ray. that's the point. >> do most dentists agree with this study and will they act in accordance with the results of this study? >> i don't know. the study was just released and sow how dentists react is with their own bias and own individual patients. if you have dentists who are
7:39 am
intelligent, i won't think most of them are, you have to take the studies for what they are, in general it would make sense to do x-rays less frequently because we know not just based on this study but any study that's ever been out there, x-rays are not a good thing for your face or teeth or brain and it goes along with a that. >> it's so frightening to me. guess where i was on saturday? i was at the dentist and guess what i had on saturday, an skprarks x-ray, and it was a bite wing. the study was pointing out bite wing. they say normally if it happens it's a benign tumor bus it doesn't make me feel better. >> well, it should make you feel batter. >> but just the fact of having a tumor your honor brain that could possibly be caused by a brain. >> everything is location. if you have a benign tumor can be worse, depending on the location, than a malignant tumor. i think getting one x-ray on your teeth is not going to necessarily, you know bring
7:40 am
your -- it's not a threshold of risk that i would not worry about not getting x-ray. on the other hand i think, the way you lead your life you don't want to get multiple films if they're not necessary. in the end the frequency of risks has to be mitigating against your benefit. >> the thing is most people don't know how much is enough. >> the dentists have to know it. the dentists know, i'm sure. they don't want to give patients tumors. this will be discussed in their literature. on the other hand there's not a 100% guarantee. >> the american dental association is already racing some criticisms. >> right, which i think is appropriate. when you do studies that are large like this or you go back and call people you say, do you remember having an x-ray when you were a child, oh yeah i remember. well, that's great, but the trouble is when you start doing very rigid statistical measurements to memory you can run into some problems.
7:41 am
>> you don't seem overly concerned, doctor. so your bottom line is? >> my bottom line is -- it's another going to prevent me from getting an x-ray if i go to the dentist, per se, but if i'm not having symptoms i don't think you should as willy nilly -- it's not one x-ray that's the problem. it's the repet tifb nature of the x-ray. it's like using cell phones or coffee. do these cause a problem? it's not going to stop me from drinking coffee or use my control phone because i need to use it. it's a risk/benefit analysis. the way i interpret is if you're concerned, question it. do we really need do this today? is it absolutely necessary? that listle shift, i think, is important for the consumer because if you cut your x-rays down to 50%, it's got to be a good thing. >> so the bottom line is ask the dentist. >> i do what the dentist says

7:47 am
intended to scare away cigarette smokers. >> chip reid is with us from washington with the story. hello, chip. >> good morning, gayle and charlie. later today in the courthouse the obama administration and big tobacco will swear off in a high- high-stakes battle. we should warn you some of the images you're about to see are quite graphic. the images are intended to be shocking. a man exhaling smoke through a hole in his windpipe a pair of deceased lungs next to a healthy pair. the sewn up body of a man who died of lung cancer. if they're hard to look at that's exactly the gold when the food & drug agency ordered the companies to place these graphics on their cigarette paths to encourage americans, especially children and teens not to smoke. >> it's been proorch in study
7:48 am
after study these images deter young people from starting to smoke. >> reporter: but in february a federal judge ruled that forcing tobacco companies violates the right to freedom of speech. today the cigarette companies are going to argue that the government cannot force them to display disturbing images that are even more prominent than their own label. >> the supreme court said government cannot manipulate speech in this way, to try to put the thumb on the scales to get people to do what they want not, you know, be making their own choices in the marketplace. >> i'm mary. >> reporter: but antismoking gum companies -- >> it's time to have counter-advertising right on the sides of the cigarette packages
7:49 am
to give consumers a voice and to give some balance to the glamorous -- glam orization of tobacco. >> reporter: many other countries including brazil include labels that are even more graphic. here in the united states the images were supposed to start appearing on cigarette packs in september, but this is a case that could go all the way to the supreme court. that's only a few blocks from here, but it could take a year or more to get there and even if the tobacco companies lose in the end, the delay could save them millions. charlie and gayle? >> all right. thank you, chip. i often wonder charlie, if these are effective on people addicted to smoking. i think about my mom. when we showed her graphic thing, all that did was tick her off. i wonder. does it make a difference to someone who's hooking on smoking? i was never a smoker so i don't know. >> if this would do it -- >> -- more power to it. were you ever a smoker?
7:50 am
